Maybe some of us were not applauding the "return to the familiar", but the journey that took us there? If you already touched on that, nevermind...

"""(Talking about the cheers after a jam and the return to lyrics)
"The audience cheers at these points because the return of the melody and therefore the lyrics means a return to the familiar, to the predictable and understandable after long forays into the unknown." """

All posts well said. But, come on guys, the author just doesn't get it. Probably too smart for his own good.

I think it's fairer to say that the author is one of those fans mentioned above who skips Bird Song, TOO, Dark Star, in favor of the tighter songs. There were certain cues, such as the perjorative mention of the "seemingly endless improvisation" in Dark Start that tipped me off toward this. The author probably was cheering for the return to familiarity, while the rest of us were celebrating the jam.
